As usual, Apple has everybody involved sworn to secrecy about the exact details we can expect from the iPhone 7 which is likely to launch around September/October 2016. That’s not to say, however, that there aren’t already rumours flying around.
Here is a round-up of what we think we know about the next addition to the Apple family and what we can expect will follow on from the iPhone 6 and 6s:
New screen dimensions?
It is expected to follow in the style of iPhone 6 and offer users two sizes to choose from, presumably these will be the 4.7 and 5.5 inches but Apple may decide to surprise consumers with new measurements. This will be great for fans of using their phone for playing games or watching films as the larger screen offers a greater user experience. This isn’t wasted on sites like Spin Palace who continue to offer users the chance to enjoy their favourite casino games like Poker or Blackjack on their mobile site, a perfect cure for the boredom-inducing commute.
An updated processor and a whole new headphone jack?
As with any other iPhone update, there is bound to be an update to the processor. At the moment, it’s expected that Apple will unveil iOS 10 in the summer before launching the iPhone in September to allow some hype and speculation to build up in the interim. However, there is already some controversial elements to the new phone which have upset Apple fans. It is touted that there will be an updated headphone jack which would render all previous headphones and accessories useless in the new design. It is thought that the new headphone jack will be a lot slimmer than previous conceptions with a diameter of just 2mm.
A new iPhone design.
Whilst the previous updates to the iPhone have sought to improve the quality of the camera as well as providing users with a better processor, it seems likely that the new iPhone will include a new design. If things continue as they have been, it seems probable that Apple will want the iPhone to be thinner and they could take inspiration from Samsung’s S6 Edge and innovate the screen itself. There have been rumours from the Asian supply chain regarding the screen with some suggesting that Apple will change to glass-on-glass touch panels which would allow for an edge to edge display whilst others believe that the continued use of in-cell panels will allow for a thinner device.
